I wouldn't say that an acceptance of death gives life meaning. It merely provides incentive to value what limited life we have more intensely. The meaning of one's life seems a different matter altogether.

Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, just as it is the spirit of a spiritless situation. The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people is required for their real happiness.

I am an Atheist and I don't know if there is any objective meaning to human life. I suspect there isn't. I also suspect that most of what is referred to as "meaning" is subjective.

It's only when one has done everything that can be done, discovered everything that can be discovered, learned everything that can be learned - it is at that point that one's life becomes not only meaningless, but utterly incapable of being ascribed meaning to. You've done it all, seen it all. There's nothing more for you. Your life can never have any purpose, because you've done everything.
Error: logic not found.
How does doing part of everything gives meaning to life? My job doesn't give me any meaning.
Also after you have done/discovered/learned 99% of everything does last percent give meaning to life?

Are you implying that everyone can find meaning without ultimate objective?

Then why not end your life at 20 with euthanasia, life will be even more valuable.

Many atheists say that.

Not in my experience. When I had an existential crisis I couldn't do anything. Now when I know that my life is eternal I'm very active person.

No, actually, we don't.

Therefore atheism is illogical just like I expected.
